    You are aware that "The College Network" is NOT a school but a publishing company that creates customized study guides. They attempt to facilitate you completing the pre reqs either through CLEP exams or courses. It hey do not issue credits so you would not be transferring to ISU from the college network, as the college network is neither a college nor an educational institution.

    Any independent program, whether online or distance education requires self-discipline and the ability to work independently. Some students thrive following an education plan recommended by TCN and their proprietary study guides. Others do better seeking their own reference materials to prepare for exams and/or coursework. Ultimately it is up to the individual to be self aware of their learning style and capability of independent work, do your research on options available. . Some people are very successful utilizing the paid study guides, others are not (for a variety of reasons, not necessarily financial)

    Good luck in your endeavors.
    Yes, I am aware that the college network is not a college. I also understand if I go this route, I have to stay with it bc these subjects that I'm taking does not transfer anywhere else. Once you signed up to do TCN, you have to be committed to do the program the whole way through. ISU's nursing program accepts the classes that you do through TCN, but you don't necessarily have to go through TCN to go to ISU. If you go onto ISU's nursing program website and you have the classes that fulfill the lvn to BSN online program requirements, you can apply.

    I am also looking into the college network. After I spoke with an advisor, I started doing some research and seeing a lot of bad reviews, so I sent an email to ISU asking about the program and college network. They sent me a message basically telling me to go through colege network for the transition courses and then apply to ISU. I am thinking that if ISU suggested it then it must be ok, right? I already have all of my prereqs done, I just need the transition courses. I have already taken the TEAS test too, so they said I won't need to take that again. It all sounds pretty good, I am just concerned about all of the bad reviews!

    Check out the ISU forums on this board, click on colleges in the yellow bar, then select Indiana State University forum from the list...lots of tips and information there. I'm working from a mobile device but I'll see if I can post a link
